Return Trip From Zurich to USA

We stayed the previous night at the airport Hilton. If you had a later departure, I would recommend staying somewhere else, and then taking the dependable train system in to meet your flight. The benefits to staying close are that you are not in a rush, and don't have to worry about delays.

Since we were booked in Economy on the way back, I tried to upgrade us to Business Class - something that is virtually impossible to do (as we found out) since nobody knows how to do it. If you try, you get the old run-around (go see somebody else, since we can't help you here).

After passing through security again, we boarded our flight to the USA. 3 x 3 x 3 seating in Economy Class from Amsterdam to Detroit. The jet was completely full.

The plastic-tasting food came in a box-like system.

The food was really bad. But that's what you get in Economy Class. Drinks were free, which was nice. For long flights, I stay away from alcohol - just drink water and apple juice.

Enroute over the ocean.

Over Halifax, Novia Scotia enroute to Detroit

The flight back was really long, but not too bad. Sleeping is virtually impossible in Economy Class. Fortunately, it was day, so I spend the time on my computer doing productive things. We landed in Detroit, and because I checked my bag, the wait made me rush to get the connecting flight. Customs was fast and efficient. I caught my next flight, and we were back in Madison early evening.
